Awe 50

I made this card for my husband's friend who turned 50. The inside says "Where the crack and pop isn't just the beer can anymore!" This stamp is actually an Aussie Santa, too funny, from Make it Crafty. Well they are having a 1 year celebration and until June 28 their stamps are 40% off, just put celebrate into the coupon code. They are celebrating all of July so go and have a look at their stamps Make It Crafty I just LOVE their background stamps. The kitchen behind the Aussie is a separate stamp and I merged the two together. This is the first time I've used it and I love it! The light green splotched background paper is actually a making memories paper that's just light green. I used handsome hunter craft ink, stamped and embossed the splotched background onto it. I've entered this into:
